How and where to use rankommen

In "Ich hab gehoert du kommst an Kiffe ran", what does rankommen stand for? Dict.cc definition doesn't seem to be of real help either.

The sentence means something like "I've heard you can get hold of dope." "Rankommen" is a colloquial form of "herankommen". http://www.dict.cc/?s=herankommen and http://en.pons.eu/dict/search/results/?q=herankommen=deen=de=de

As 'dope' can mean different kinds of drugs (and often refers to heroin) in English: Cannabis/Marihuana are meant.
